I feel like such a knob. I had pulled some cooked shrimp from the fridge for lunch. I thought it was shrimp from a few days ago but now believe I've misremembered when the shrimp was from. I believe it was from far longer.
The shrimp was in an airtight container, did not have any slime, did not smell, and the texture of the shrimp did not have that mushy, disintegrating taste when shrimp goes bad. It tasted, it smelled, it looked normal.
Am I bound for a night with the porcelain god tonight and if so, are there any precautions I can take? Isn't the smell test usually the safest bet?
